J.A.R.M. v.4/5/10

* – remember my two  “Thank God I’m A Tripod” posts (here and here)?

Well, add another reason to the list.

A “butt-bra?”

Really?

* – so Sandra Bullock is putting the blame on herself for her husband, Jesse James, being a cheating scumbag? To the point where she’s reconsidering divorcing him?

Seriously?

Exactly how the fuck is it ever the faithful partner’s fault that the cheater is cheating? How does that work? As far as I’m concerned, here’s the bottom line – if things are so bad in your marriage that you’re seriously considering cheating, tell your partner you’re unhappy, leave, and file for the divorce. If things are that bad, WTF are you sticking around for? At least have the courage to be honest about your unhappiness. 

If you simply can’t control your sexual urges, why’d you get married in the first place?

* – they’re going to remake Private Benjamin?!

* – and try to reboot the American version of Godzilla?

* – oh, and don’t forget two Independence Day sequels.

* – this looks like one of those movies that’s so bad it’ll be good:

* – a moment of silence, please, for the inspiration of Stand and Deliver.

* – ahhhh, the 80s

* – and now for something completely depressing:

Good song, though.

* – ever wonder how to recover files you accidentally deleted?

Wonder no more.

* – guess what demographic makes up the majority of the Tea Parties?

You guessed old white men, didn’t you?

Guess again.

* – ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!

Kudos to Bill O’Reilly for stepping up.

* – wow. That’s all I can say, here. Just “wow.”

* – “I don’t worry about the Constitution.”

Obviously.

Here’s the guy’s attempt to cover it up.

* – yeah, I’ll sign this contract.

* – here’s an interesting remake of the Declaration of Independence.

* – well, at least the vast majority of Congress can agree on something.

* – seventeen minutes to answer a question? (here’s the whole doozy – in. three. parts.)

You still want to tell me The One doesn’t love the sound of his own voice?

* – can somebody please fire Michael Steele? As if his other misadventures aren’t enough, check this out.

Catch some of those details? $18,000 to redecorate his office. Over $13 grand at a candy bar. Over $18 grand at a gift shop. Almost $32 thousand for catering. Almost $145k for hotel rooms. Over $17g for chartered jets. Nearly $17 grand for limos. And, of course, the real kicker – almost two thousand dollars for a night at a strip club.

This does not help the GOP. The Right is in a position to reap enormous benefits in November thanks to the Obama administration’s insistence on ramming their hard-left agenda down America’s throat. 

IF

That’s the key word, here – “if.”

If the Republican party can somehow regain the trust of the American people. If the Republican party can repair the damage of the George W. Bush years. If the Republican party can convince America that they are the party of traditional moral values and fiscal discipline.

Dropping two grand at a strip club doesn’t not help in any of those regards.

Look, I personally have no issues with strip clubs. I’ve been to more than few in my lifetime, and – finances and Cookiemaker permitting – I’ll go to a few more before I leave this world. I used to work at one. I really don’t see why people get all worked up over them. 

However, quite a few people do get all worked up over them, and Republicans usually make up the majority of that group, and the Republican party is supposed to be party that’s against them. So when one of them drops a couple of Grover Clevelands at a bondage-themed, lesbian-sex-simulating go-go bar, it smacks of hypocrisy.

And that hypocrisy is not just on a moral level. Granted, when our current and previous presidents are proposing $3 trillion + budgets even $145 thousand doesn’t sound like a lot of money – but it IS a lot of money, and it’s money that doesn’t have to be spent. You don’t have to fly on private jets. You don’t have to drive around in limousines. You don’t have to stay at the Four Seasons. And you certainly don’t have to drop two thousand dollars in one night at a strip club. If you’re supposed to be the party of fiscal conservatism…

LEAD BY EXAMPLE!!!
